Flour and Stone, Woolloomooloo

I have heard wonderful things about this place, the pastries, the pies and many more. For fans of Nadine Ingram’s cookie Couture gingerbread, the not so new news is that she has opened flour and stone in the old Sweet Inifinty space (which has now moved to the Strand) which is in Woolloomooloo.

Upon entering Flour and Stone, you are instantly greeted by smiling faces and the smell of delicious baked goods. I was tormented by the various cakes and cookies, I really wanted one of each.

We were hungry, so started with the slow braised lamb, potato and rosemary pie. Now as most of you know, I am not a huge fan of lamb, but this lamb pie was incredible. Tender, succulent lamb with no smell or after taste. It was seriously good,

Uncle ordered the leek and gruyere tart and OH MY GOODNESS!  The pastry was incredible, the soft creamy filling of leek and gruyere melted in your mouth. It was seriously tasty and I couldn’t help but buy one for the next day and seriously, I can definitely eat one right now. The tart was just A M A Z I NG!

We were full. But I did manage to buy a couple of things. One being the large ‘fine apple tart’ – thin crispy crust topped with finely sliced apples which is caramelised. It does tastes even better than it looks. Unfortunately, I had to share this with ‘The Mother’ and it did not satisfy my apple tart cravings!

The famous cookie couture – hand iced gingerbread, monkey shaped and it was good! I forgot how good they were.

Flour and stone serves many delicious goodies – cakes, scones, gluten free cookies, cookies, slabs of nougat, cheesecake and many savoury tarts including caramelised onion and goats cheese tarts and sandwiches.

They serve coffee alchemy coffee and pots of rabbit hole tea brewed in brown betty tea pots.

Came back a week later, E was craving for their old fashioned vanilla cake – how good can it be I thought? OMG! It could definitely be my favourite – soft, fluffy, melted in my mouth. Wanted to buy the whole cake but I knew that would be dangerous!

I love the croissant here too, soft, buttery, flakey – oh my. Absolutely scrumptious!

This could be my new favourite bakery. You can check out their full list of products here.

*note, they are not open during the Christmas break, re open on the 9th January 2012 from memory.
